Why “A” Students Work for “C” Student

I totally agree that school is a place where former “A” students teach “B” students how to work for “C” students.
Trace where your school’s best graduating student is today.

In life, C students succeeds better than the “efiko” and geeky A students because of the psychological theory of Compensation Learning. YOU SHOULD BE AT AN ADVANTAGE BECAUSE OF YOUR DISADVANTAGE. In the words of Kanye “everything you’re not makes you everything you are”..

Just like a blind man can hear better than you, most successful people broke through because they had to learn and get better at something else, since they didn’t have what others had.

Do you know that the Forbes List has more dyslexics and college drop outs than graduates (including Richard Branson, Ellen DeGeneres (of Ellen Show), Ralph Lauren, Bill Gates, Abramovich, Mark Zuckerberg). LBS and Harvard always takes a pause, when Dangote is invited to teach business.
The former presidential aspirant, Senator McCain graduated 894th out of 899th, and Abraham Lincoln dropped out too!
That’s why Bishop Oyedepo, a third class graduate owns a school, and Tony Elumelu founded a bank.
My graduate school professor who taught me “entrepreneurship” in MBA is an “employee”. Oops. He works for the university. Imagine.

Warren Buffet at 14 was concentrating more on accumulating over 400 acres of farmland that he later leased to his “A” grade classmates. That’s why you went to school, read (or cheated) to get good grades so that your “street-smart” boss can employ you to work your life away!
Wake up.. there’s something missing. Don’t forget to thank me later if I help you find it.

School and your regular theory is failing. There are more practical concepts to succeed…in this age and day, u
ncertainty is the only thing to be sure of. But there are certain steps, opportunities , principles and people that can help increase your chances.
If you knew better, you’d do better.

I totally agree with you. However, there are still a few people too scared (maybe comforable where we are) and very risk averse. They’ll rather get paid and hope for promotions than risk it all. Reading (or hearing about) other people’s success stories has a way of breaking the barriers and bringing the necessary challenge….
